Everything Florida was playing for entering the season a Southeastern Conference championship, an East division title went out the window in a 24-20 loss to No. 18 Georgia (6-2, 5-1 SEC) at EverBank Field. The Gators redshirt senior quarterback returned from a high ankle sprain suffered against Alabama on Oct. 1, but it wasnt enough to help Florida (4-4, 2-4 SEC) avoid a foursince 1988. A gutsy performance on his part, coach Will Muschamp said. Hes a guy that really laid it on the line. Brantley didnt go through pregame warm-ups with the rest of the team and was unable to take snaps from under center because his injured ankle limited his mobility. As a result, Florida ran mostly fourand limiting what the offense could do. JACKSONVILLEI of Floridas most historic rivalry, Will Muschamp has made sure the new era of Gators football would be remembered. Problem is, most would rather forget. After losing to Georgia to close out a winless October, and with all hope of a late charge at the division title lost, Muschamp seems to have this Florida team is playing. This year, were not close, he said inside the bowels of EverBank Stadium on Saturday night.

Researchers at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, Calif., found that people who had more than three alcoholic drinks were 30 percent more likely to develop lung cancer, with a 70 percent rise in risk if the person preferred beer over wine or liquor. more than 126,000 people between 1978 and 1985. Researchers studied their lifestyles and diets and tracked their incident of lung cancer through 2008, according to a U.S. News and World Report article. Next, they monitored the instances of lung cancer. American College of Chest Physicians, held Oct. 22 to 26 in Honolulu. Ronald Akers, a UF criminology and sociology professor, said alcohol is linked to lung cancer because people who drink have a higher frequency of smoking as well. These people are social smokers and drinkers. There is a behavioral correlation, Akers said. PeoMatt Wattstwitter: @wattmatts SEE DRINKING, PAGE 4Akers

MONDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 Nov. 2, 1970: When reporting on a Halloween celebration on the Plaza of the Americas that attracts about 1,000 costumed students, Alligator writer Janet Oles quotes Vice President Spiro Agnew: Halloween is a big event to hippies. Its the one day they look normal. I can understand people like that dressing up or, should I say, dressing down. Oct. 31, 1995: Alachua County Animal Services personnel remind Gainesville residents to beware of overly protective pets on Halloween. Those expecting trickor-treaters are asked to secure their pets, as Halloween is one of the worst times of the year for animal bites. Nov. 1, 1996: UF alumna Sherri Wollschlager starts a petition to redesign the Gator logo, which she calls the steroid lizard. Wollschlager says the logo, which was redesigned two years before to remove Alberts hat and give him more muscles, is too violent for kids to see. Nov. 1, 2005: Beta Theta Pi fraternity members paint the 34th Street wall to remember a fraternity brother who was beaten to death Saturday night at a Flor ida-Georgia game afterparty in Jacksonville. MINA RADMAN and RACHEL ROWAN TYLER BENJAMINAlligator Contributing WriterThe Student Recreation and Fitness Center got a makeover Tuesday when maintenance and delivery staff replaced more than a dozen machines. The new strength-training machines, made by FreeMotion Fitness, replaced old machines of the same style. The machines were between 8 and 10 chines, said Katie Roberts, RecSports The replacements follow the trend which hasnt just included massive over hauls at Southwest Recreation Center. Earlier in the year, the Student Recreation and Fitness Center received car diovascular machines like treadmills, stepmills and cycling machines and expanded The machines added at the center Tuesday cost RecSports $57,576, said Gary Zetrouer, associate director for resource and project management in the department. He said this years RecSports budget is about $5.7 million. The budget is allocated by Student Government from activity and service fees collected from students by the university. The RecSports board of directors made up of students, faculty and staff then decides how to spend the money, he said. Roberts said she hopes students will appreciate the new equipment and said part of her job is to make sure students have a good place to work out while they spend years at the university going to school. We dont want people to think that Student Rec is the backup gym, she said. BRIANNA KOLOTAAlligator Contributing WriterStories of black cats being during satanic Halloween rituals proliferate every year. In response, some U.S. animal shelters ban the adoption of black cats during October. Friends of Strays Inc., which conducts pet adoptions in St. Petersburg, does not permit the adoption of black cats from its shelter in October, said Margo Thomas, foster program coordinator. But others say there is no need for this suspicion. Stories of groups performcats are urban legends, said the Rev. Diallo Mudd, or Lord Moonraven-Iuvantas, who is a member of the Circle of the Phoenix witchcraft group in Jacksonville. Most mainstream pagan faiths dont do that at all, he said. Cats are actually protected in these religious groups. Hilary Hines, public education program coordinator for Alachua County Animal Services, said she has worked at animal services for 12 years and has never seen a case of Halloween-related black-cat abuse. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals found no correlation between Halloween and the abuse of black cats, said Mallory Kerley, a media coordinator for the organization. But Kirk Eppenstein, executive director of Hailes Angels Pet Rescue in Gainesville, said there is a heightened awareness about animal abuse in October. The rescue scrutinizes an individual during the adoption process. If a person came in to the rescue looking to adopt a solid black cat and did not ask about anything else, Eppenstein said he would be suspicious and question his or her intentions. Its kind of like the 9/11 terrorists, he said. They the planes, but they didnt want to learn how to land the planes.Black-cat adoption raises questions in OctoberZetrouer Most mainstream pagan faiths dont do that at all.Lord Moonraven-Iuvantasmember of the Circle of the Phoenix witchcraft group

AUBREY PRIMERAlligator Contributing WriterTebowing: To get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely differ ent. After the Denver Broncos Oct. 23 victory against the Miami Dolphins, UF alumnus Tim Tebow knelt in prayer while his teammates celebrated the 18-15 win around him. What he did at the end of the game was unreal and deserved tribute, said Jared Kleinstein, founder of Tebowing. com, which features photographs of everyday people Tebowing. Kleinstein, along with four other Broncos fans, started the Tebowing craze themselves. Kleinstein said that when he pulled a Tebow outside of Sidebar, a sports bar and lounge in Union Square, New York City, he had no idea that photograph would one day be viewed by millions of people. Kleinstein purchased the domain name on Tuesday for $10, and 785 users visited the website on the first day. By Saturday afternoon, the website had about about 800,000 users and 3.2 million views, Kleinstein said. Tebowing.com features an array of photos of people Tebowing coupled with witty captions, including photos of UF students and cheerleaders during the Florida-Georgia football game with captions like Cheerbowing and #TebowingNation. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner has acknowledged Tebowing and given it his approval. To get down on a knee and pray when not necessarily everybody else is doing it, I think thats a pretty cool thing, Tebow told reporters on Friday. And its stepping out for something that you either believe in or that you want to show or if you just want to pray, either way its pretty cool. Tebow also commented on Tebowing through tweets. He said he loves it and posted photographs of people Tebowing on Twitter. One included a child undergoing chemotherapy entitled Im Tebowing while Chemoing! Kleinstein said seeing the response to Tebowing from so many people is what makes the website worthwhile. Theyre all just Tebowing away, he said. smoking. Multisubstance use syndrome states someone who uses one kind of substance is more likely to use another. Smoking and drinking are not caused by each other but are closely related, Akers said. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more people die in the United States from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. According to the CDC website, in 2007, the latest year for which the data is available, 203,536 people were diagnosed with lung cancer, and 158,683 people died from it. Individuals ages 18 to 25, the college-age group, who start drinking and smoking now are more likely to keep that habit 25 years from now, Akers said. He said this increases their chances of developing lung cancer. 4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2011 DRINKING, from page 1More die from lung cancer than any other typeAP PhotoDetroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch, left, mocks Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow by Tebowing after sacking him ALUMNISingle prayer, website starts nationwide Tebowing craze ERIN JESTERAlligator WriterUFs graduate school will soon be mining some untapped diamonds in the form of masters degree students at historically black colleges and universities. The HBCU-UF Masters to Ph.D. Pathway Project is an initiative to increase doctoral student diversity at UF and attract students who would not ordinarily consider pursuing a Ph.D., said Janet Broiles, recruitment and graduation coordinator for Graduate Minority Programs. Henry Frierson, associate vice president and dean of UFs Graduate School, started the program because he encountered many talented masters degree students the untapped diamonds who had not entertained the idea of getting a Ph.D., Broiles said. Under the project, faculty members identify outstanding masters students during their first year of graduate school. If the student decides to pursue a Ph.D. at UF, he or she would spend the second year of the masters program working with a UF faculty member. That faculty member would provide guidance. The student would then apply to a UF doctoral program. Theres certainly no guarantee, Frierson said. Pathway Project students must apply and undergo review like every other applicant. Their masters degree work would be reviewed heavily, Frierson said. UF will collaborate with 13 colleges on the project. Broiles said she expects two or three students to be selected from each partner school. The first group of Pathway Project participants is projected to matriculate at UF in Fall 2013. Some of the partner schools have doctoral programs, but those programs may not be in the areas students want to continue to study in, Broiles said. Frierson selected schools for the project with different Ph.D. programs from UF. The project specifically targets historically black colleges and universities because they contain a pool of students who dont usually attend bigger universities, Broiles said. The project also seeks to increase diversity of UFs doctoral students. I think any time you can bring in individuals with philosophies and backgrounds into a research arena, it broadens the depth and scope of research that the university can put forth, Broiles said.UF recruiting Ph.D. students with new program Project to increase diversity of doctoral students I think any time you can bring in individuals with philosophies and backgrounds into a research arena, it broadens the depth and scope of research that the university can put forth.Janet Broilesrecruitment and graduation coordinator for Graduate Minority ProgramsName

EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterDont tell Kelsey Tainsh theres something she cant do. At age 5, she became a cancer survivor after undergoing surgery and radiation to remove a tumor from her brain. By 11, she began motivational speaking and had founded an or ganization that brings puppies into childrens hospitals. By 13, she had acted in the movie Rumor Has It... with Jennifer Aniston and Mark Ruffalo, as well as an episode of Desperate Housewives and an episode of Gilmore Girls. By the time she was 15, she was a state-champion rower with the Winter Park High School crew team and ranked third in the world for girls wakeboarding. Then her tumor came back. During her second brain surgery this one 10 hours long she suffered a stroke that left her paralyzed on the right side of her body. People started telling her all the things shed never do. Kelsey, now a 21-year-old recreation and event management junior at UF, started proving them wrong. Over the past six years, Kelsey has learned to walk again. Shes relearned how to eat and write and run and swim and row and put her hair into a ponytail. All milestones. I always knew [the paralysis] would be temporary for Kelsey. Kelseys sister.

They share the same best friend, the same clothes and, throughout high school, many of the same classes. In fact, it was in a math class Erica and Kelsey had their sophomore year of high school when Erica saw was back. Kelseys face started to go red. Erica asked her what was wrong, Wait. I cant talk.

The 18-year-old twins were traveling in Europe after their high school graduation and anxiously awaiting updates from their parents across the Atlantic. After about 10 hours, Kelsey came out of surgery. She had suffered a stroke, the doctors said. They knew going in it was a possibility. But she was alive, and they hoped the tumor was gone. When she woke up, she couldnt move anything. Opposite the bald patch above her left temple, her face drooped. She couldnt smile, and she could barely talk. Her right arm and leg were paralyzed. Her abdominal muscles had relaxed, making her stomach swell. I had always thought medicine erie, now a premed student at UF, until then. But Kelsey wouldnt stay inactive for long, beginning physical therapy about a week after her surgery. I was going to run again, she vowed. Initially put in a rehab program with other stroke patients, Kelsey, the 16-year-old world-class athlete, wasnt being challenged and didnt make much progress. So her dad called Dave Nitti, a physical therapist at the Florida Hospital, to give Kelsey private sessions at home. She was convinced that she was going to get better, Nitti said. She was such an active kid; she always wanted to push herself. She amazes me all the time. They started out small: Wiggle your toes. Now move them an inch. Now move your foot an inch. with a walker, then with a cane. Then she was running. Once, she the Beyond Therapy program at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta. Kelsey and her mom drove seven hours twice a week for therapy sessions. Here, Kelsey was treated more like an athlete than a patient. She learned to lift weights and to row again, using a special glove over her right hand. Kelsey hopes to one day be a world-class athlete again this time in Paralympic swimming. She swims more than a mile at a time and works out at the gym about three times a week. No longer an actress, she now travels around Florida as a motivational speaker, sharing her message of hope and encouragement. This semester, the UF junior is balancing 13 credits, an event-management internship at the OConnell Center, weekly community-service events and monthly doctors appointments around the country. She has traveled on medical mission trips to Mexico with her family and studied abroad in Costa Rica, France and Greece. In her spare time, shes writing a book about her experiences. Recurrent cancer can be very aggressive, according to the American Cancer Society, especially in young cancer survivors. Kelsey must get regular MRIs and checkups to monitor her body. Though she is in remission, theres always a chance her tumor can come But just try to tell Kelsey she wont beat it. Im living with cancer, but Im not living in fear, she said. I realized at a very young age that life can be very short, but I fully believe that you can do whatever you want in life if you put your mind to it, no matter whats happened to you.

Fridays question: Do you consider UF a jock school?Thank YouNorth Florida Herald to close its doorsIn this cruel economy, the news industry has suffered great losses over the past few years. October in particular has been a tough month for the newspapers in Florida. Weve been hearing about newspapers laying off employees, cutting back on the number of pages and transforming fully into online-only publications left and right. But this weekend we heard some news that hit us really close to home. We got word that the North Florida Herald, previously known as the High Springs Herald, a 60-year-old weekly newspaper based about 30 minutes north of Gainesville by way of I-75, will be going out of business. Ronald Dupont, owner of the Herald, publisher and editor of the paper for the last eight years and a Gator grad, said in an email to intern applicants this weekend that the paper will be That this award-winning newspaper will no longer be printing is a great shame for the whole community. The Herald embodies what a community newspaper is supposed to be about. The paper is indomitable in local coverage. For 60 years, the Herald has served the communities of High Springs, Alachua, Newberry and Fort White. Herald reporters have sat in on every City Commission meeting, met every police chief and have been at every festival and fundraiser For many years, the Herald was the Alligators sister newspaper, published by the same company, and more than a handful of Alligator editors and reporters have held internships there. Dupont has always been a regular at the journalism internship fairs, ready with a big smile for applicants and Herald internship alumni. The newspaper is practically a landmark. It is small, but Dupont and the paper are widely respected in newspaper circles. Were sure the announcement will shock many, as it shocked us. We encourage you all to stop and pick up an edition of the paper before it is too late. Read about how a corn maze in Newberry has helped save a family farm or how the City of Alachua plans to renovate the local recreation center. The Editorial Board sends its best wishes to everyone at the North Florida Herald. The value of the service this paper has provided through the years cannot be measured. We are for ever thankful. We thank Ronald Dupont for being a stalwart over the years. Many Alligator alums have gone on to great careers after receiving his guidance. That guidance will be missed. Because of his leadership, and because of the passion for journalism that lived in that newsroom, the feistiness of community journalism will not go away with the end of The North Florida Herald. Student loans should be harder to obtainW hen I was applying to college, I was fortunate enough to have plenty of options. I couldnt wait that would decide where I went. Once the packages started rolling in, I saw that even though my familys income was ents were frugal savers. the quality of undergrad programs at other schools because it was a moot point since I couldnt afford them without taking out tens-of-thousands of dollars in student loans. Financial decisions like these happen every year, and the new changes proposed by the Obama administration make it easier and cheaper to get large student loans, making it easier than ever to mortgage your future. We should make Some in the higher education community feel that everyone must have the opportunity to attend college. Despite the only way we can be successful in life is to have the right degrees from the right brand-name schools. This attitude leads countless students picking up extra masters degrees because they just dont have any idea what to do next. I would argue that one year of your life and The alterations in the governments student loan program build on the changes enacted earlier in 2010 when the feds took away the right of banks to make student loans. Payments on some loans will be limited to 10 percent of discretionary income, and any outstanding balance after 20 years of payments will be forgiven. Some members of Congress are trying to cut the interest rate for these loans. At 6.8 percent next year, this debt is far lower than what one would pay on credit cards, but also higher than what a family with good credit would have to pay on the private market, which is slowly dwindling due to government-run loans. These efforts sound eerily familiar to what the government said about the right to own a home. Credit was made cheap with countless government programs and guarantees, and regulators encouraged banks to make risky subprime loans to extend credit to noncredit-worthy individuals. Government involvement in the student loan business is a dangerous development, especially as total student-loan debt is approaching $1 trillion. Federal programs do not provide strong incentives for poorer people to take advantage of the abundant opportuniin the state and should remain the destination of choice for students from modest means. Anthropology and sociology you will be in debt up to $20,000 after graduation. ROTC should be encouraged as a route for students who want to attend more expensive colleges. Also, two-year community cash-strapped students to get a four-year college education. As a society, we must support the idea that success does cessful. I have no problem with students taking out debt, but why should we not require money down like with houses? We need students to realize how much money they are throwing away by attending a private, liberal arts college over a university. charging students 6.8 percent on loans that cannot be discharged in bankruptcy court while the government borrows that money at sub-3 percent rates. Government should not have rights like a business because its power is not limited. Relying on the private student loan market to fund higher education makes the student realize the full cost of his or her decision to not go to a public institution.

Letters to the Editor MONDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Cultural appropriation is inappropriateUsually I laugh at the ignorance of your columnists, but the Alligator Editorial Boards dismissal of the STARS campaign is a new low. You say, If we cant laugh at ourselves, can we really laugh at anything else? Correction: Minorities are not dressing up as themselves for Halloween. Others, outside of those minority groups (primarily whites) are dressing up as minorities, which is a sign of their white privilege. This is called cultural appropriation. It is not cute, and it is not funny. You say, Stereotypes have always been a subject of comedy. Wow, is that really your masterful argument? Because it has occurred for so long makes it OK? Just because blackface has been used throughout history does not make it acceptable, nor are any other similar attempts of appropriating a culture through costume and makeup. We are not laughing at ourselves; you are laughing at us and using our cultures as the punchlines. If a mar ginalized group is telling you that it is being offended or subjugated, then you, as the majority, should not dismiss them just because it is not an issue for you. Your privilege automatically makes the issue invisible to you, and they are attempting to bring it to your attention. So how about you stop and listen? Race and ethnicity are not things that can be put on or taken off. Minorities cant hang up a part of their identity in a closet. What is with this temporary fascination of others culture? What gives you the right to pretend for a night? Laura Guzman UF advertising junior Tax-neutral plan can still fund Medicare and Social Security at current levelThe following is a tax-neutral and nonpartisan way to continue funding Medicare and Social Security at the current level. I have suggested this to all members of the Congressional Super Committee, our senators and two local congressmen. First, remove the upper limit of $106,800 for Social Security deductions on earnings. Second, allow an income tax credit for those additional deductions to make it tax-neutral. Then the maximum payment to these well-off retirees wont need to increase. Third, the extra payroll tax money could allow a decrease in the percent paid into Social Security and an increase in the percent to Medicare, which is underfunded. Finally, Medicare should require means testing for some items, such as scooters and other optional medical devices. Security, the elderly frequently needed to live with and/ or be supported by younger family members. Which senior relative do you want living with you? This bit of socialism advances the goal of the Preamble to the Constitution to promote the general welfare. I dont understand those who are trying to destroy this scare tactics being used on both seniors and our young are unconscionable. One more deception that is being perpetrated should be addressed. Lower taxes have rarely encouraged more jobs because wages are tax-deductible to employers. They just encour age more greed. Mignon A. Craig AARP Tax Aide Volunteer Williston, Fla. As the month of October concluded, only a small minority of UF students and faculty took part in a major occurrence. Marking its 25th anniversary, National Breast Cancer Awareness has worked to promote outreach to toward a cure. In light of this, such a cure remains elusive in spite of many organizations possessing some of the most brilliant minds ever to work toward a singular goal. As students, we all should give our time and effort to make breast cancer and all types of cancer the forefront of our own interest. It would take only a rudimentary look into cancer to conclude that its prevalence can hit women of all genders, racial or ethThe American Cancer Society produced its yearly estimates for new developments of breast cancer in the United States. As of 2011, over 230,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed. In 2008, the National Cancer Institute presented several charts showing the incidences and mortality of breast cancer. It found that although the rate of diagnosis of breast cancer increased in the 1990s, it has decreased since 2000, and the over all breast cancer death rate has dropped steadily. Before we all gather with celebratory banter and rejoice, this was only present in women typically over the age of 50. To properly discuss how many differ ent variables and factors could contribute to breast cancer, perhaps another guest column is needed. There are a number of uncontrollable risk factors that put women at risk including age, genetic predispositions, family history and other things. Lifestyle choices, having children, conducting breast feeding, usage of hormone therapy, physical activity, etc. all play a role in the occur rence of breast cancer. This does not even scratch the surface of environmental factors such as smoking, exposure to pollution, background radiation, etc. me keep this point succinct. There will be women who touch our lives who will develop some form of cancer, and we must remain both knowledgeable and vigilant in our health management. In an overview of my own personal family history, I know the pain of losing others to cancer. I never had a chance to meet my maternal grandfather, Stephen Milien. He saw his own life extinguished from prostate cancer about age 74 in February 1992. Despite having a bilateral orchiectomy (removal of both testicles), he withered away and died in the company of our family. My maternal grandmother, Cleante Dupuy, passed away from breast cancer in 2000. On a Sunday in 1998, she had ar ranged for her church visit in Brooklyn with my mother. Noticing a hard spot on her right breast, she had a biopsy conducted the following week. The test revealed that not only did she have cancer, but it had already metastasized. The next two years were horrible on my family as she became an empty shell. She slowly faded away because of extensive chemotherapy, along with a double mastectomy. My grandmother died Sept. 25, 2000, from stage IV breast cancer that had metastasized to her bones and liver. All of us have an obligation as students, teachers and family members to strongly take into consideration the long reach of cancer. Women in their 20s and 30s should have a periodic clinical breast exam every three years. Women in their 40s onward should have a mammogram screening every year. This is often prohibitively expensive for lower-income women, and much more must be done to reduce costs and cover screenings. When the last day of October concludes, we should not rest in ambivalence or ignorance to the facts. To the contrary, we must assume vigilance in doing everything to reduce the occurrences of breast cancer and remain on task in regard to our health. Guillermo Pradieu is an English sophomore at UF.Breast-cancer awareness should not end after OctoberGuest columnGuillermo PradieuSpeaking Out

MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterMatthew Carroll sat up straight and looked at his employees. Around him sat two other staff members and a co-founder for Niche Mobile, a Gainesville appmaking business. Weve got to be serious about what these projects will entail, he said. Fresh into the adult world and entry-level programming, Carroll and his co-founder Garrett Strobel, both UF alumni, have started their own business. Theyre set to launch their newest, and so far biggest, app this winter: Dub Studio, a userfriendly music maker. The rise of mobile devices in the past few years has driven Carroll and Strobel to cash in on a digital boom. They said they feel Niche Mobile has the potential to grow from a small technology startup to become part of the big leagues, just like Facebook did and Apple before it. This new frontier is open to all these people, Strobel said. I love exploring the possibilities. Strobel, 26, and Carroll, 23, started Niche Mobile at the beginning of this summer. Since then, theyve pumped out Gator Parking, Who Data?!, Wubdub Dubstep Generator, Loop N Go and Dubstep Wobble Bass. The apps range from a parking locator for UFs campus and several Dubstep sound generators that give off wobbly, base-heavy music. that, Carroll said. The company of about 10 people ing business Grooveshark while its and working off a shoestring budget, Strobel said. Sitting at a borrowed wooden table, Carroll explains hes not in The reason I think were here isnt so much business reasons but realizing our own goals, Car roll said. If theres ever a time in your life to try something risky, its now. Starting a business may be hard, but hes not going to give up this been working toward it since he was a preteen. Growing up in DeLand, Carroll From there, he taught himself brought IB and AP programming classes and competitions. From there, he earned bachelors degrees at UF in mathematics and computer science. ters of digital arts and sciences program in May. Carroll said hes glad hes been a part of the masters program, but he also is excited to graduate so he can focus on making apps. X and loaded one of Niche Mobiles apps, Gator Parking. Speaking about the apps he coded, he leaned forward and waved his hand around the phone. Facing the phone away from himself, he pointed to features that tell the user where he or she can park on campus and hovered his hand over the glowing screen as he spoke. Strobel, who sports a short, trimmed beard and mustache, sat talked about the creativity of their business. Every new skill thrills him, Strobel said, because it puts him one Some people, I think, just love to make and create stuff, he said. My whole life Ive realized Ive been in love with ideas. Strobel, a Boca Raton native, was attracted to biology in high school, but he was soon drawn to art in colwith pulleys and metal levers. It was about imagining things ished product, he said. As he got closer to his senior year, he realized he was interested in programming. lyzer that sent drunken updates to Twitter and a heart monitor that emitted ultrasonic signals when the subjects heartbeat raced. from UF and graduated from UFs masters program in digital arts and sciences this past summer. The duo met in the masters program and both took classes at Grooveshark University, designed to teach young entrepreneurs how to create, market and sell mobile products. From there, Niche Mobile was born. So they meet up with their staff They discussed coding the way a football coach talks about offensive plays: with straight, serious faces and detailed diagrams so everyone Sometimes theyll hit a roadblock, such as a piece of code that doesnt work the way it should. But Strobel said thats all part of the process. None of us are experts on this, Strobel said to a staff member. I dont have these answers for you. Well just do the best we can, Carroll said. 8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2011 Amanda Cohen / AlligatorUF alumni Matthew Carroll, left, and Garrett Strobel, right, started Niche Mobile.

Murray hooked up with Tavarres King, who hauled in the 14-yard score over sophomore Jaylen Watkins. We had a couple third-down, fourth-down stops that we needed to make and we didnt come up with those, Howard said. Thats all a part of growing up as a defense and as a team. We will. Outside of his fourth-down heroics, however, Murray was harassed by the Gators. The sophomore entered Saturdays game averaging 236.1 passing yards per game, second in the Southeastern Conference. Against Florida, he managed 169 yards. Also, Murray only completed 44 percent of his passes 17 points below his season average. But it was Georgias running game, and Floridas inability to stop it late, that put the game away. Clinging to a 20-17 lead early in the fourth quarter, the Gators ries, ending with a 4-yard touchdown run by Richard Samuel. After Floridas offense came up short on three drives in the last 5:32 off the clock, running the ball eight times for 35 yards. The drive ended 1 yard from the end zone, stopped only because the clock struck 0:00. I wasnt in so I wouldnt know, defensive end Leon Orr said when asked about the last drive. But its all about us knuckling up, and when those opportunities come theyve just got to go in there and execute.

We held them to .227, so we out-hit them by 50 points, which weve had multiple games like that, Boos said. time weve gotten out-hit by someone, so hitting numbers arent really what winning the match is about. Although Florida struggled as a unit, the Gators did see a starring performance from sophomore Chloe Mann. Mann started in place of senior Cassandra Anderson at with a career-high 10 kills. The Gainesville native also block assists and seven digs. You cant be happier for Chloe, Boos said. Shes a player that not many people have seen play. Shes a real talent. To be honest we didnt get the ball to her enough because of our ball control. She probably would have left here with 15 or 20 kills if we got the ball to her more. With hopes for an SEC title gone, Florida is now just lookseason as best it can. The team will play again Friday at home against Alabama at 4 p.m. The biggest thing is that this weekend was a little bit of rattler, Boos said. You have to come back from this mentally. We have to go back to the drawing board a little bit Were a little bit inconsistent match and set to set, and we have to improve on that. MONDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 13 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffRunning back Richard Samuel (22) and the Georgia rushing attack helped the Bulldogs control the second half of Saturdays game. Georgia runs out clock on tired defense DEFENSE, from page 14 VOLLEY, from page 14Gators drop out of race for SEC title Muschamp disappointed with UFs undisciplined penaltiesJaylen Watkins and aided the Bulldogs game-winning touchdown drive. Later, a call against Roberson gave Geor gia a conversion on third and 4 and allowed the Bulldogs to run out the clock. UFs other fouls were the type of undisciplined penalties Muschamp has preached avoiding throughout the season. Florida was called for a pair of 15-yard facemasks, and sophomore Ronald Powell committed a personal foul when blocking on a UGA punt that went out of bounds. Clearly frustrated after a season of questions about penalties and discipline, Muschamp offered a simple answer Saturday. Disappointed with it, he said. Only adding to the aggravation were expectations that a bye week would help Florida regroup. Instead, its back to the drawing board. I thought we were going to correct those in practice, Hunter said. We worked on different cadences and things for our defense of getting used to that kind of stuff. Tonight it just didnt happen the way we wanted it to. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org.

GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer JACKSONVILLE The scoreboard said Georgia beat Florida, but in many ways the Gators were responsible for their own downfall. As has been the case all season, UF struggled with penalties and turnovers in Saturdays 24-20 loss to UGA. Were really beating ourselves right now with these penalties and these foolish turnovers, junior defensive tackle Omar Hunter said. Thats something weve got to get better at. Floridas two giveaways led to 14 Georgia points, as a pair of fumbles set the Bulldogs up in prime scoring position. Senior running back Chris Raineys second-quarter fumble gave UGA possession at UFs 25yard line. The error led to a 20yard touchdown pass from Aaron Murray to Michael Bennett that cut UFs lead to 17-10. In the third quarter, junior wide receiver Frankie Hammonds fumble gave Georgia the ball at the Florida 18. Four plays later, a 14-yard pass from Murray to Tavarres King tied the game at 17. We just had some critical mistakes in critical times, coach Will Muschamp said. Although Marcus Robersons a streak of 13 quarters without a turnover, the Gators matched their season average with a minus-1 turnover margin. On the year, Florida has a minus-8 margin which ranks 114th nationally and last in the Southeastern Conference. UF also continued to burn itself with penalties, a problem that was evident from a holding call on the opening kick. For the game, the Gators recorded 14 fouls for 106 yards. Their 9.38 penalties per game mark is the most in the nation, and their 70.88 yards per game average in penalties is No. 115 nationally. Noise was attributed as a factor in those struggles, as Jonotthan Harrison said there were times when he couldnt hear redshirt senior quarterback John Brantley over the crowd of 84,524. The Gators committed four times for delay of game. Muschamp has also, on numer ous occasions, cited a lack of discipline as a reason for UFs penalty struggles this season. It could be mixture of those, Brantley said. That crowd could have had a factor when we were backed up in our territory. Youre closer to the fans. for a pair of fourth-quarter pass was on sophomore cornerback Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida coach Will Muschamp reacts to a pass interference penalty during the second half of Floridas 24-20 loss to Georgia on Saturday. The Gators racked up 14 penalties for 106 yards. Penalties, turnovers again the story in UFs fourth straight loss MEGAN WALSHAlligator Writer After a disappointing four-set loss to No. 20 Tennessee on Friday, the No. 13 Florida volleyball team was just shooting for a win Sunday against Kentucky in Lexington. But the No. 24 Wildcats were looking to make the Gators recent loss into a road-trip trend. Florida once again struggled with its second match in a row to a Southeastern Conference opponent, 3-2 (25-23, 19-25, 25-21, 17-25, 15-9). Whoever was leading the ball control was winning the match, Florida associate head coach Dave Boos said. When we cant win the ball-control game, were going to have a problem, and we obviously didnt make enough plays there at the end. Despite strong efforts from a varied lineup in convincing wins in the second and fourth sets, Flor ida (17-5, 10-3 SEC) now holds a 0-5 record when dropping Although the Gators outdid the Wildcats (21-4, 12-2 SEC) with their offense took advantage of multiple Gators fall to Wildcats, Vols on weekend road tripVOLLEYBALL TYLER JETTAlligator Staff Writer JACKSONVILLE John Brantley played like he didnt have a right ankle, and it almost cost Floridas defense its lungs. With Brantley unable to take snaps under center, the Gators running attack was nonexistent, forcing Floridas defense to Saturday. While defensive players said that they werent tired, that they kept going strong even as the offense struggled to maintain possession, the unit clearly slowed down as the game wore on. No. 22 Georgia leaned on its running attack all afternoon, gaining 185 yards on 49 tive-19 yards on 22 running plays six of them sacks on Brantley. Running backs Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps combined for 38 yards on 13 carries. They had a good offensive line, senior defensive tackle Jaye Howard said. Their did a good job; we were battling him all night. I feel like they just executed and we couldnt. In particular, the Bulldogs executed on fourth downs, which proved to be the backbreaker in what was overall a solid effort from the Gators defense. On fourth and 5 from the Florida 20yard line, Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray found Michael Bennett in the end zone on a fade pass over freshman DeAnte Saunders, cutleft in the second quarter. The Bulldogs later tied the game, again on a fourth-down fade pass. This time, Defense hung out to dry as Florida offense struggles UF Fo otball We just had some critical mistakes in critical times.

Weve just got to be they couldnt get anything started after halftime. In the second half, Brantley connected on While Brantley struggled, he didnt get much help from the rest of his team.

The team committed 14 penalties for 106 Georgia, including four by Bulldogs linebacker Jarvis Jones. The last came on a sentially sealing the game for Georgia. Jarvis is a good player, Muschamp said.
